"...I recently saw another column at ZDNet regarding the long
overdue and much anticipated Linux 2.4 kernel. I can safely say
that although this article is hardly neutral toward the situation,
it looks as though the author, Ms. Mary Jo Foley, has made some
kind of attempt at objectivity."
"It outlines some strengths of the new kernel to be, as well as
some flaws. Actually, it flushes the flaws down my throat. It
begins by saying that as major distribution vendors are shifting to
the next major versions of their distributions, the new 2.4 kernel
is all but ready. Therefore, either these companies will ship beta
code, or an old kernel that will be outdated within three months or
so. They also failed to mention that the user can upgrade his
kernel at will, when it's released."
"...Now, perhaps I'm a conspiracy theorist, but if ZDNet has so
few good things to say about Linux, and neither do any of their
respondants, then there is something wrong at ZDNet. They
[ZDNet] spread more Linux FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) than even
Microsoft. Perhaps Microsoft has bought the copyrights to FUD, and
ZDNet has an exclusive license to distribute it."
